FROGS is an acronym for the spaces we jump between in the face of a change or a disorienting life event. My own unexpected life shift as well as my work with leaders and organizations showed me this pattern. 













  • F: FREAKING OUT. Life as I’d known it had fallen apart. I was at a fork-in-the-road. I was freaking out and wanted it to fall back together asap.

  • R: REFLECTING AND RESPONSIBILITY. As I took on new responsibilities as a single mom and provider, I reflected on one key question—now what? How was I going to manage this disorienting event, what was my responsibility in getting here, and what choices would I need to make now?

  • O: Over time, I was slowly but surely OVERCOMING OBSTACLES.

  • G: GROWING. Despite myself and my circumstances, I was GROWING—in small and big ways.

  • S: SOVEREIGN SELF. And here’s the thing—none of the growth had to do with a prince. There was no magical kiss or crown—just me, crowning a royal, more resilient version of myself—a stronger, evolved, expanded, transformed version of myself.

Any journey through uncertain terrain and challenging times requires a map. Brenda's 5 FROGS® model offers a trusted guide to navigating change.
Even more, her process and these journaling practices will help you trust yourself as you grow into who you are becoming.
